I came home from work on Thursday and what was waiting for me but a great box of goodies from my friend Rivet.  Couldn't wait to get into the house and open it.

First thing I pulled out of the box was beer!  I love beer!!

Boulevard Pale Ale and Mueller Wheat beer.  Both are delicious, ridiculously delicious.



The Mueller's had a beautiful color and that subtle cloudiness one expects from a fine wheat beer, very tasty beer.




I love to smoke meats and this Curly's Hot barbecue sauce and Ott's Ozark Recipe Barbecue sauce will be put to good use.



Can't wait to try the Strawberry's Rub and as soon as it cools off a bit here I'm going to stir up a pot of chili using this Ozark Red Chili Mix.  Love good chili.



Seedless Black Raspberry Jam, Yum!! I love that for breakfast and Rivet's Salsa Fresco, look at the beautiful colors in the salsa!  I'm going to try the salsa tomorrow with a cold Boulevard Pale Ale and a bag of chips.




...and here's what I've been looking forward to the most.  These Riga Gold Smoked Sprats.  All the way from the ice-cold waters of Latvia to here in the States, how cool is that?  These are absolutely unavailable here and I have been wanting to try them badly.  Smoked fishes are one of my favorite things in the whole world.  I am going to post another pic of them when I get to actually try them.  I am going to try them on cocktail rye with a slice of good cheese and will post a pic of that.  Unfortunately, I am out of good cheese at the moment and need to run over to the store tomorrow and see what I can find.  These sprats deserve to be paired with a cheese that is worthy of them.



Thanks for everything Rivet!!  It is all wonderful!

Andy

I just got off the phone with my friend of over 30 years, Terrible Tim, who has signed up here but hasn't had a chance to post yet, he is the Grill and Chili master.  He just finished hiking the Grand Canyon for charity, he survived a near-death bout with pancreatitis a few years ago and raises money for pancreatic research, and is now visiting his son who is a police officer in Oregon.  

I told him about the Strawberry's Rub that Rivet sent me and he is dying to try it so I am sending him half of the jar that Rivet sent me.  We are going to send Rivet a jar each of "Bad Byron's Butt Rub" and "Butt the Kitchen Sink" which are our favorite rubs to try.Smile

Congratulations to TT for both his victory over cancer and his completed hike. That's one tough dude! Nice of you to send him half your jar, but if you all need more, just let me know. The uses for it are endless...sprinkled it on fresh tomatoes the other day-wonderful stuff.

 
Looking forward to the rubs, and thanks a million- please say hi to Tim for me!

Will give him your regards! 

Tim and I drove to North Sidney, Nova Scotia and then took an overnight ferry to Newfoundland in September 2006 to hunt moose, woodland caribou, and black bear.  I drove from Atlanta to my hometown in Indiana, 10 hours, and then Tim and I drove to North Sidney, NS which was another 28 hours, and then boarded the overnight ferry to Newfoundland for our hunt.  We had a great time and then a couple of months later he was basically pronounced dead by his doctors but he proved them wrong. 

Cherish every moment of this life.
